We went today for a visit to Freud's museum We were very surprised to see so many visitors there. It was a very interesting visit for us who are not into psychoanalysis. Learning about him as a man, his friends and followers. It is a small museum but very interesting. Yona S.

This museum is actually the small apartment where he lived and worked. It consists of about 6 rooms supplied mostly with furniture and memorabilia supplied by his daughter as Freud and his family left during Nazi occupation of Vienna. The guide was free and very educational about Freud. We used the Hop on Hop off to get there as it... More

This small museum of only a few rooms gives you some very good detail on Freud's life. But if you are not into a deep dive of his life, this place is not for you. My Social Worker wife wanted to say she saw Freud's office so it was a must for her, but let it be known, if you... More

Greatly enjoyable to see where Freud lived and practised. Make sure you get the paper guide as well as the audio to appreciate all the exhibits. It definitely could be expanded in future to include more about his work, I imagine it would not be rewarding if you have no background in his work.

We were in Vienna and came into the Museum by accident. The museum was Freud's home and where most of the firsts for psychoanalisys have happened. You could see Freuds hand writings, videos, things he used and the story of how he was exiled from Vienna. What wa string for me was the mirror that Freud used to look at... More

Entering the museum via the old fashioned door, stairway and buzzer system really made you like you were entering an genuine century old apartment rather than a museum. However I'd only recommend this museum for those with a serious academic interest in Freud. For those with more of a casual interest, this museum could be quite dry. There are hundreds... More

This is easily one of the worst museums I have ever been to. Ludicrously overpriced, and quite a walk away from from the centre of Vienna. As the title says, do not waste your time and money on this place. I was really looking forward to visiting the Freud Museum on our trip to Vienna, as I found the Freud... More

This was a small museum but very authentic and full of interesting items such as Freud's doctor's bag, hat, walking stick as wel as personal items. The museum is located in the Freud home which contained a waiting room, consulting room etc. This was such a genuine experience in situ and very well maintained with original furniture etc though not...

The museum is small but contains a lifetime of relics and memories, fully detailed by the audio guide and an information booklet. The booklet provides details of each relic, photo, or trinket identified by number. One can spend many hours reading through all the items. If you're interested in the life of Sigmund Freud, this is the place to learn... More

Staying in Serviten Quarter

Neighborhood Profile
Serviten Quarter
The Serviten Quarter is an inner city neighborhood with many private charms. Popular with French and American expats, Sigmund Freud’s neighborhood boasts his former practice and apartments, now turned into a museum. Stunning Liechtenstein Garden Palace houses the private art collection of Prince Adam of Liechtenstein. Romantic Strudlhofstiege close to the palace is a fantastic photo spot. With their small independent shops and eateries, the main streets of Liechtensteinstrasse, Porzellangasse and Servitengasse reveal much of this area’s character. Peek into baroque Serviten Church, with its richly decorated dome and walls. At the Old Jewish cemetery in Seegasse you can see one of the most precious cemeteries in Europe with tombstones almost 500 years old.
